A shout of appreciation into the fediverse for the JOY!!! of our domain names. I’m on tootplanet.space??? Or sunbeam.city??? Or wandering.shop? Y’all are on places like jorts.horse? How beautiful are all of these! How open-world

Surprise, surprise, Raspberry Pi 4 has been launched!

Faster CPU, dual 4k HDMI support, up to 4GB RAM, USB type C, USB3 and (finally!) no more bottlenecking the ethernet port over USB2: full gigabit speeds!

Also: same old price 😍

Actually, every person is an NPC. There is no player character.

I am surprised to see Apple moving to Zsh, but I also didn't know they were stuck on pre-GPL3 bash.

And now I know how an RBMK reactor explodes.

Ambopteryx is a dinosaur with bat wings. Not a pterosaur either, but an actual dinosaur.

So basically, dragons actually existed on Earth, but they were only as big as sparrows.

Well, okay then. I delay watching GoT by one day, and apparently I basically can’t use social media at all for that whole day.

When you find that someone hasn't seen something everyone else already had, don't make fun - be glad. They're still able to watch it for the very first time.

And maybe, if you offer, they'll watch it with you?

A very special moment that @[email protected] is sure to love: a student at the @[email protected] @[email protected] sprints closes the most metal of issues #666, fixing a non-trivial layout issue after 2 days of debugging. Congrats, @[email protected] 🤘

Now obviously, they aren't perfect and it takes a ton of money/people/dedicated management to do this sort of thing, but pivoting your organization the way MS has is **impressive**.

Most of the time, if there is a focus on backwards compatibility, it means that anything new is awful. MS seems to be balancing both *really* well right now.

I joke somewhat, but I think MS is doing a great job with the .Net/C# ecosystem. It's really great to see a company that is both improving things while also being a steward of their "legacy" community.

The nerves of steel needed to do a live hardware demo as a #PyCon2019 keynote… 40 mins of prepared remarks is *trivial* compared to this. *MAD* respect to @[email protected] for even *attempting* this.

After all these years, I’m still astounded by how overwhelmingly *nice* everyone in the Python conference community is. It’s abundantly clear that everyone just sincerely wants to help you be better at writing software. #PyCon2019 #PyCon

Cool to see a Mastodon talk at

Thanks @phildini !

Sounds like there's an open space later.
